The in-house QuadReal development team is committed to advancing a prudent development program in Canada with the benefit of the opportunities inherent in the portfolio, or those which may become available through future acquisitions. We are guided by a long-term vision, focused on rigorous and responsible execution. The team is regionally based to ensure a thoughtful alignment between local market conditions and planning and development. In every market in which we operate, we draw on our deep experience to evaluate and execute upon opportunities.
On behalf of BCI, members of the QuadReal asset and development teams have been deeply involved in several recently completed projects. The integrated nature of these projects within their neighbourhoods, and the vibe and energy the projects have introduced into these communities are the hallmark elements that the QuadReal team will advance in all future projects.
Project Spotlight: The Birmingham
The Birmingham is located in South Etobicoke, Toronto at the former site of the Campbell’s Soup factory, which was one of the first major Toronto-area employment districts in the 1930s. This project honours its location’s rich history while adding modern and sustainable features that will transform the site into a Class A last-mile urban distribution and logistics facility. QuadReal’s Development team has worked closely with the City of Toronto and the surrounding community to reach a design that is respectful of the surrounding residential neighbourhoods.

QuadReal’s Development Approach
Our in-house team executes on development in Canada and guides development with our international partners. We approach the conception and advancement of a project with these guiding principles top of mind:
- Ensure the entire portfolio is responsive to demographic and market conditions
- Leveraging an approach that is respectful of local communities and neighbourhoods
- Partnering with organizations that have a collaborative, team-based approach and value longer-term relationships
Being an industry leader is not only about recognition or performance scores, it is about sharing insights with peers and supporting partnerships. We will collaborate with our tenants, municipal and business partners to advance progress in the sector and work collectively to leave a lasting, positive social and environmental legacy.
